  • Why GOLD Should Shine in Your Portfolio

    By Chris Bailey - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: GG, NEM, GOLD

    I have long been fascinated by gold and gold mining company investment.

    I found this Oxford Economics report commissioned by the World Gold Council in 2011 particularly useful as it showed that gold (page 6) is an asset class that not only retains but increase its real (after inflation) price over time.  Later on in the report (page 33) the authors show that there is a positive impact of gold more »

  • Gold Falling, But There Is Hope

    By Neal Sayatovich - April 22, 2013 | Tickers: FCX, GOLD

         When I worked in the media field I was fortunate enough to work with some very stock savvy coworkers.

Some of the advice I was given was to always look at oil, gold and medical technology. So early on I watched gold and other precious metals as they were some of more »

  • Investing in Gold and Silver

    By Ryan Peckyno - January 28, 2013 | Tickers: IAU, SLV, GOLD, SLW

    When I was a kid I used to go to the local coin shop with money that I earned mowing lawns and buy an ounce or two or five every now and then – usually about once a month.  Gold was too expensive for a kid from a middle class family.  But back then an ounce of silver was around $4 – $5 compared to the $30 that it is today.

  • Billionaire John Paulson's Favorite Gold Stocks

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - September 27, 2012 | Tickers: AU, ABX, GFI, IAG, GOLD

    On the back of QE3, commodities are sure to have an illustrious future, with gold having the potential to lead the way. Gold has largely served as an inflation hedge, with investors more recently using it as a way to make money, by betting on Ben Bernanke and the Fed’s attempts to jump-start the economy.

  • Misfit Stocks

    By Gerelyn Terzo - September 17, 2012 | Tickers: ABX, GG, GOLD

    I'm a baseball fan and one of my favorite lines is in Moneyball delivered by Peter Brand (Jonah Hill): "I believe there is a championship team that we can afford, because everyone else undervalues them. Like an island of misfit toys." Labeling gold stocks as misfits may be a stretch but one could argue that they are harshly undervalued.

    The poor performance is due to poor production numbers – only about 700 more »

    There’s just something about seeing comic book heroes on the big screen.
